‘Alexis’ demoted in Ugly Betty

As Series Two finally gets a timeslot in Oz, confirmation today that Ugly Betty’s ‘Alexis’ (Rebecca Romijn) will not be returning to Ugly Betty as a regular in its third series.

“She’ll be back next season in a recurring role,” a spokesperson for ABC Studios says. “Watch for some juicy twists in her storyline.”

Ealier this week, Romijn told the New York Post that recent behind-the-scenes changes at Betty paved the way for her sorta-exit: “They made a tremendous amount of changes, especially with the writing staff. And while I know I’ll be coming back next season, with all the changes, I’m not sure they can take care of my character the way they have been. So I’ll be… back in a recurring capacity.”

The second season of the ABC comedy returns to Seven on Wednesday May 7 at 7:30pm.

  1. such a shame… Alexis was one of my favourite characters. I don’t know how the show will continue without her character… but I guess we’ll have to wait and see…

    meanwhile the show returns May 7th at 7:30 Wednesday night… I’ve seen a few sneak peaks… mind you the first few episodes get juicer!!
